The time it takes for a responder to arrive after your call depends on several factors. All calls are given a priority that is based upon the incident type and whether or not the incident is still in progress. All priority calls are dispatched using Automatic Vehicle Locators, so the closest unit will be dispatched to your location. Other factors are: weather conditions, how far the unit is from the incident, and how busy the agency is at the time. As a result, calls that are not a high priority may wait until a unit becomes available in the area.
